My nephew is 16 and he was thinking of getting his motorcycle license but he found out that it's cheaper to operate a scooter. He just wants something cheap to go back and forth to work. With a scooter, we've learned that it doesn't have to be registered or anything where we are and he just needs a regular license. Is there any reason he would be better to go for a motorcycle right now? He's only been driving a few months.

As a parent I would wait, it does not seem like he has enough experience just yet to "go big or go home". There are some drivers in my area that don't even pay attention to drivers on a motorcycle let alone a scooter. Does he live within the crowded city with a good deal of traffic for his commute?

Scooters are much easier to ride than a motorcycle. I'm guessing he knows the roads to work and would be better able to decide whether the roads are safe enough for him to ride a scooter. Scooters have come a long way and some, like Reed said above, are pretty much slower versions of motorcycles with far less cost.

I am sure they are easier to drive but what about timing. If they go slower how long will his commute be and what will it be like in bad or semi-bad weather? Most of the people in our area that ride them never ride until the sun is shining. I would think that might mess up his attendance at work, right?
